    Power Distribution Module

    I'm going to install a PDM60 from Rowe-Electronics, instead of auxiliary fuse box for powering all my added accessories: GPS, CELLPHONE CHARGER, Alarm system, DVR, LOUDER HORN, aux lights.


    Has anyone else installed one of these, and if so - where did you position the module for programmable access?  I found a little spot/slot just aft of the battery which might work?

    Dave,
    I installed mine a few years ago.  I put it underneath the seat right behind the mini-storage box against the right side.  I filed down a spot in the divider between it and the storage box to run the wires going up front, then out the opening on the right of the box.  I used double-stick tape to fasten it against the side (make sure you're done programming it first!).  It works like a charm!

    AWESOME...looks like a good spot for that....probably have to run some additional wiring from the items I'm installing for this to power and control to that location...I'm going to have everything apart soon for the R&G bar and GPS mount installation anyways, for easier access to find hidden and protected wire running routes then, eh.

    I found out that if about once after every 30 days; I can log into my EZ PASS (automatic RF transmitter device for TOLL ROAD charging to credit card account here on the East Coast and up through Chicago and Wisconsin I've been with one working so far: Trip to get my 2017 TTSE last October) account and request "REPLACEMENT" 3M Velcro, and they send the little pieces free in the mail to my house (1 set per EZ PASS I have on my account - so 3 is MAX at a time).  I find these are great for attaching things like the PDM60 module and being able to remove it later - such as for re-programming the unit, and re-install it.  I don't know if where you are they have such TOLL PASSES?  But if they do, a nice little source for some really good roadworthy VELCRO...LOL!

    Also, did you use the Common Ground wire that was included with the PDM60?

    Also, what is the other device in the middle of the picture?  (ALARM SYSTEM)?   I'm thinking about putting the "BRAINS" of my alarm system in that spot.

    You can swing into any toll booth and ask for some new velcro pads and they will give them to you for free.  I've done this for each new vehicle I've bought.

    I ran the main ground wire directly to the battery - don't remember if there was another ground besides that.  The part in the middle is for my Gerbing heated gear.  It just fit perfect there.  I thought about removing the storage box, as I don't use it for anything normally (other than storing screws when I'm working on the bike), but haven't needed to yet.  And no, I don't ride any toll roads, other than the occasional toll bridge in the bay area up north.

    I got one of those Stash/storage boxes that goes behind the license plate (locks) for holding my registration, insurance card, post-it note pad and a mechanical pencil (for writing anything down to do with an insurance issue - like the name/license plate number, etc of the cager who rear-ended me - keep all that in ziplock bags) , so I don't use the TTSE's box for anything except holding hardware and tools when I'm working on the bike too - LOL!  I got that so if I need to get my papers out and it's raining or something, I don't have to take the seat off the bike for access to the Trophy's storage box to get them, and in there I won't forget to bring them riding either.

    My TTSE has the heated grips and seats, but I don't have heated riding gear yet...


    Albeit, the TTSE's box (or the space it occupies) might be a good place to store extra 9mm ammo magazines (this stupid NY State only allows 7-rounds loaded per magazine/and magazines can hold 15-rounds), so have to carry x2 amount of magazines for a complete combat load, eh!) when on the road, and I don't like COPS having easy in-plain-sight searching ability of my stuff (GET A WARRANT to open things up) and vehicles during a normal routine stops for other things (like when a cager rear-ends me), so with my documents in the license plate stash box, that won't happen...so, there's that.  Often don't ride around town with panniers or top box installed for storage, less weight and chances of damaging them when a cager rear-ends me (You can tell I've been rear-ended by'fore, eh - by an 18-year-old while he was texting and almost killed me).

    Anyways, I digress - I've got one more circuit left on the PDM60 open, looks like a nice power draw for a Radar Detector, which will help me avoid the PO-PO in the first place!!!
